We propose a concept for the comprehensive optimization of load bearing structures. The main idea is to decompose the optimization task. First, we use a phase field model to evolve the topology as basic design. The parameters of this process are the filling level of the design domain and the tendency to nucleate more or less holes. Second, we use an interface to set up a subsequent structural model, where cross‐sections and positions of nodes are simultaneous optimization parameters of a metaheuristic optimization method.
